Established in 1920 by patriarch Lorenzo Scavino, Azelia is located in the commune of Castiglione Falletto. This small town is in a special and unique location, where the two soils types of Barolo are stratified together, lending both power and elegance to the wines. In 1967, Alfonso Scavino (son of Lorenzo) took the reins of the estate and bottled the first wines under the Azelia name. Today, Alfonso’s son, Luigi and grandson, Lorenzo are the 3rd and 4th generations in charge of this family estate. To this day, the father and son team continue to apply what they learned from previous generations, making wines that respect the traditions of their forefathers, while utilizing modern techniques to continually improve their quality year-after-year.
Luigi Scavino is the cousin of Enrico Scavino of Paolo Scavino winery, and the two share ownership of the famed Fiasco hill. In addition, Azelia has holdings of the San Rocco and Margheria vineyards located in Serralunga d’Alba, and they produce old vines bottlings of both Barbera and Dolcetto. Total production is around 6,000 cases per year.
To this day, Azelia remains a Barolo lover’s secret – though the estate somehow continues to fly under the radar, they have built their reputation around beautiful wines of uncompromising quality.
